The Tibetan quail are fast flying, flush well and most of all they are aggressive. Our breeder developed this breed of Coturnix. As well as the Pharoah quail they can be raised in a minimum of expense and care. The best age the Tibetan makes a good bird to train dogs with or use on hunting preserves is 8 to 12 weeks of age. They are very hardy and disease free quail. A dark plumaged bird for eggs or meat. Often used for training dogs, as it is spirited and will give the dog a good workout. Adult wt. 8-10 oz. This a color of coturnix quail. They are small, dark plumed, and very spirited. Tibetan quail do covey the same as bobwhite and can recall the same also, but sometimes need to be trained to do so. I don't know if Tibetan Quail will imprint. If everything is good for them they will stay. I have had other customers tell me that and had them there the next year.Usually we sell Tibetan Quail from 8 to 12 weeks for training. They are fully mature quail body wise and reproducing at 6 weeks. Most people will release the same as they would a bobwhite. Customers have said that they put them either the night before or at least a few hours before hunting. They will hold for a dog and are strong flyers. They are somewhat different in their habits as compared to a bobwhite. If used at the right age they can be great birds for training and hunting.
